Why is an episode about victory named after one of the most famous defeats in world history? Is it because the crushing blow to Napoleon proved to be a smashing victory for the British Empire and its allies?

It tells us too much about Apple, and not enough about Jobs. And what it does tell us about Jobs is more a depiction of of events rather than an incisive look at what made him the great, maddening, transformational figure he was.

It appears we will have to wait until May 3 to see how Iron Man conquers his insomnia -- which I'm guessing will have something to do with Tony simplifying his life. Fortunately, you don't have to wait that long to address your sleeping hindrances.

I'm also disappointed with Obama. It's almost as if there's two of him: a nerdy political scientist and a raging populist monster. You don't suppose... ? Nah, that only happens in comic books.

Not quite as much fun as Thor, not nearly as bad as Green Lantern, Captain America: The First Avenger feels less like an exciting comic-book-hero movie than required reading for a course called The Avengers, arriving in theaters next summer.

Iron Man 2, entertaining as it is, and I like it, is a big missed opportunity. It could have been a lighter version of The Dark Knight, exploring deeper themes in a pop context with a more congenial cast. Instead, it's confused.
